FLORENCE – The threat of Hurricane Florence has prompted Clemson officials to cancel Thursday’s (Sept. 13) field day at the Pee Dee Research and Education Center.

Matt Smith, director of the Pee Dee REC, said there are no plans to reschedule.

“Safety is our main goal,” Smith said. “We encourage everyone to stay safe and take the necessary steps to protect their families and property.”

Hurricane Florence is expected to hit the East Coast as a major storm later this week.
